Home Video Asylum

TVs, VCRs, DVD players, Home Theater systems and more.

So you don't ascribe any credibility to independent observers?

>>> "For audio equipment, the Audio Asylum is often a useful starting point. Likewise with the AVS forum for HT gear, though the S/N ratio is sometimes atrociously low." <<<

Unfortunately, those who provide testimonials on A/V boards often have an agenda of one sort or another. That doesn't mean the quality of audiophile and videophile expertise at the Asylum and AVS sites isn't worth a look and sharing insights is part of the fun of it, but recommendations should be taken with a large grain of salt.

I'm sure that you wouldn't just seek out heavily biased opinions which bolster your own notions or simply base your opinion on spec sheets. Consumer Reports may not be perfect, but it is considered independent and fair; I certainly wouldn't write off their evaluations where mainstream consumer electronics are concerned.
